The Biennial High Desert Linguistics Society (HDLS) Conference is organized by the linguistics graduate students of the University of New Mexico. It traditionally features papers from cognitive, functional, and typological approaches to all the core areas of linguistic analysis (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics) as well as language change, language variation, sociolinguistics, bilingualism, applied linguistics, Native American languages, languages of the Southwest, language revitalization and maintenance, signed languages, and gesture research.

The theme of this year's conference is ''Linguistics as an Interdisciplinary Science.'' In accordance with this theme, the submission of papers that shed light on linguistic issues from the point of view of neighboring disciplines including, but not limited to, Psychology, Anthropology, and Computer Science, is especially encouraged.

We proudly announce our keynote speakers for HDLS 12:
